A word from Bagatelle - Los Angeles
Bagatelle Los Angeles redefines the French Mediterranean dining through the exquisite seasonal menu and a beautifully designed space with outdoor seating. Located on La Cienaga in the heart of West Hollywood, Bagatelle brings a new "joie de vivre" to LA, mirroring that which can only be found in the South of France, until now...
Bagatelle's contempary French Cuisine finds its roots on two continents. Our Chef grew up in Normandy, Alsace, Brittany and began cooking in local restaurants at a young age, before moving on to work under such visionaries as Alain Ducasse, Laurent Gras, Troigros, Daniel Boulud or Geoffrey Zakarian in Manhattan.

    If you like those fun, wild, loud hotspots, then Bagatelle is just that! While it took nearly an hour to be seated because nobody wants to leave, I wasn't bothered as I normally would be because the atmosphere is fun, theres great music, amazing drinks to get at the bar, and they added a table to get us seated. Kitchen wasn't going to close until we were done so there was no rush! Prices were reasonable for the food and the food was very tasty. I will definitely go back and take some more friends along!

    Loved the placed! Love the atmosphere, the look and all of that. Very sad to say that the service was not as good as I thought it would be. Have heard such amazing things about this place but the Friday night we went, it was very quiet and not as energetic as I thought it would be. We went there to celebrate my best friend's birthday yet we felt soo rushed during our courses. We did not even get to finish our dinner, the waiters were constantly coming around our table or just staring at us from afar. Asked us way too many times about cleaning up the food on our table when we hadn't even had a chance to eat it. But overall I loved the place, maybe next time for brunch.

    This was "the" Bagatelle? For those who don't know what they're getting into, it was more of a nightclub disco than a restaurant for starters- the music was that loud- large party tables galore celebrating something- it was ridiculously rowdy for any quality dining experience and the decor was nothing outstanding! If this place claims to be also in NY and St. Barths, it needs to acquire some class which unfortunately lacks. And how can management expect the handful of willing waiters to provide good service for the entire restaurant? There was a lot of wait as a result even though the food was promising. But the noise was just too much. And for that matter, the music could have been St. Barth's quality, not West Hollywood.

    Was not very impressed with the service here. Even though we were 20 minutes late the hostess made us wait 40 minutes for a table. Also, there was not enough staff to take care of the tables. Had to wait a long while to order food and drinks. The atmosphere is great, and the food is good but unfortunately the service was not up to the level I expected.

    If you are looking to nurse a hangover from saturday night at a calm mimosa brunch, this is not the place you come to. Bagatelle is a brunch day party with lots of action. There's a DJ, great food, lots of dancing, and just a fun time. The food was pretty good but people don't really come here to eat. The drinks are well made and the pitchers or bowls you can buy are pricey but if your in a group it makes more sense. If you only go with one other person its cheaper to buy drinks. I will definitely be going back.

    Our reservation was at 11 and we were seated around 12 since two member of our party of 10 had not arrive. The hostess wasn't very friendly either, considering the restaurant opened around 11:10-11:15, 15 minutes late. Once seated, we ordered two mimosa pitchers. One was pale and one was dark so we let our waiter know of this distinction so he brought out a half pitcher of mimosa. The food was great. I had the soft scramble and caviar. Friends had the waffles, French toast, hash, eggs florentine, all of which we enjoyed! Overall, the food was great, but the service lacked. I did appeciate the added mimosa.

    I came on Sunday and I knew exactly what to expect as far as the loud music and party atmosphere, I had been to Bagatelle NYC and loved it, I was looking forward to coming to Bagatelle LA. My waiter was great, fast and friendly service, the food was okay, drinks were good. DJ was very fun as well. The reason of my harsh rating is because some people here ruined my overall experience, this group of highly intoxicated trashy girls made this place feel trashy and skunky, it felt more like if I was in El Squid Roe Cabo San Lucas and not an upscale West Hollywood venue, I will spare you the details but trust me, it was ugly. I am not sure if I ever be back based on my first overall experience, I tend to gravitate towards more classy places.

    The restaurant was almost empty on a Fri night at 9 pm , the food was not memorable , the mushroom fillet mignon looked good on the pics but was just ok, the salmon was disappointing , only thing great was the tuna tartar appetizer . They have a DJ with loud music which was great for us but the food and atmosphere won't let us return , next door STK was packed, we felt we should have gone there!

    We got to the restaurant to find it empty, which was fine. As soon as we sat down, we were informed that that they were out of the salmon. I was disappointed because that's what I wanted to order. I looked at the menu again and found a few smaller items I wanted. I asked to start with the butternut squash soup, to which the waitress responded that she thought they might be out of that, and she left to check. When she returned, she informed us that, in fact, they were out of it. Given how small the number of offerings on the menu, we just gave up at that point and went to another restaurant.

    Food is out of this world, but noise level is so high you can't talk. Speakers blaring from all walls, no quiet area. They cater to the hip crowd that strolls in after 10:30, don't really care about the dinner crowd. It's a shame, as food is divine, restaurant itself is very pretty, service is great but definite headache making

    I really expected a lot more from this place. I didn't have the best experience. The music was so loud that everyone was shouting to speak to each other. Great if you're at the bar area but not if you're sitting and trying to eat. If you are not a smoker like I am, try to be seated far from the outside lounge. Everytime the door to the outside was open, i could smell cigarette smoke. Then at one point, the door was left open and it was so bad, my hair reeked of smoke after i left. My petite filet was BARELY hot, maybe warm. We didnt get refills on our water until after the glasses were empty. It wasn't even crowded so there's no excuse to not notice our waters. Waitress was just okay.

    Was entranced by Bagatelle at brunch a few weeks ago and decided to introduce friends to this vixen for a Friday dinner. Come early (8:00) for conversation before the crowds happen, then stay for great drinks and a hot scene. Their logo is a perfect representation: classy & elegant mixed with whimsy & crazy.

    Had a 9PM dinner reservation -- was not seated till after 10PM even though we arrived 10 minutes before 9pm. Front end staff were rude when I went back to the front desk and asked for an update. I have never had to wait so long for dinner when I had confirmed reservations. However... One of the hostesses noticed we had been waiting for over an hour and comped us a round of drinks which was nice but the wait really killed the evening. The food was excellent, at least what we tried, and the actual table service was also very good. The noise level made it difficult to have a conversation. This place is more for a larger bday dinner group not for small groups or table of twos. I won't return unless for a bday party or similar event.

    but don't want to go to a club, this is the place to be. However, noise level can be a bit overwhelming if you sit to close to the speakers. Service was phenomenal. We had travelzoo vouchers but still received excellent attention. Tell them it's your birthday and they offer you a very fancy smancy ice cream sundae...you are in for a 'treat!'

    Getting there before the live Dj comes on (at 2pm) is a welcome contrast. I't's all about eating and drinking and drinking and drinking and there's champagne pong and girls on the tables dancing on the chair (and this isn't Spearmint Rhino). Well dressed, all done up, hot girls,good looking guys--and the booze kept coming---and at one point we had a lull in our mimosa service because they ran out of champagne. So they kept us drinking with some watermelon shooter. Lots of fun, very unique, not for everyone, but my group I was with LOVES this place and we'll be back. Even after our $800 brunch bill.

    Prices were very reasonable. Food was delicious. Waiters were very attentive. Read reviews of people complaining the music was too loud. If you like hip hop music, then you wouldn't mind the loud music. I personally enjoyed the music and didn't mind. You could still have a conversation without shouting.
